Description Usage Format Source

Description

Two data sets on Dascyllus trimaculatus (three-spot damselfish), one on the distribution of settlement densities to empty anemones across time and space, the other on survival (recruitment) of arriving settlers as a function of experimentally manipulated densities from Schmitt et al. (1999).
